Actually it arrived Monday, but it took a couple of days to get a sound sample organized. It's a friend of mine playing, not me.

Since everyone says you should buy with your ears, I thought you'd enjoy hearing it before seeing it! Sort of anonymously, I suppose. :cool:

It's a concert size. I hope you like the sound! There's another sample of it at SoundCloud too.

Yup Stan, I did! (I'm Gillian, Steve is my friend who played the sample.) And it's your fault, you know -- you gave such a nice review of your Anakoneke that I said to myself, I should check that out, and the next thing I knew I'd ordered one. :D

Oh, that's interesting... I even happen to have Oasis strings sitting at home. They are very nice strings!!!

Here are some pictures of the uke. The wood is Ancient Kauri (front back and sides and peghead veneer), the rosette is brain sapele, and it has rosewood bindings. The bird is a Bellbird or Korimako, considered to be the most beautiful singer of all of New Zealand's birds.

Congratulations! Your Anakoneke looks and sounds great! I've met Toni a few times (we both live in San Francisco) and largely based on Stan's rave review of his own Anakoneke, I'm on her build list (start date July 1) for a tenor, so I understand what you went through.

Heh, she should give Stan a deal on his next custom for sending a lot of business her way.

Mine seemed to go real fast once she started it. The wait while it was shipping was agony, though.
